When a seven-year-old boy was swimming in the pool at his apartment complex, he discovered the body of a 3-year-old at the bottom of the six-foot-deep pool. What he did next surprised most people because they didn’t expect a second-grader to respond like that. Have you ever been in a situation where you had to save someone’s life? Many adults have had to find themselves in such circumstances and have helped people in difficulty. However, it is not common for little ones to find themselves in such contexts.
In a bizarre turn of events, the boy in today’s story saw a cub floating at the bottom of the pool and immediately knew he had to save his life. Without thinking twice, the little boy did something unexpected that attracted the media to cover his story. Messiah Browne, a seven-year-old boy who lived with his mother and brother in their apartment complex in Sacramento, California, was splashing around in the pool with his family when something strange caught his eye.
Massiah said he saw an unknown boy at the bottom of the pool, six feet deep in the pool water, whose eyes and mouth were open. Confused, Massiah told his nine-year-old relative Savannah about the boy before diving into the pool to save him. To save the little boy, Massiah grabbed him by the arms and pulled him to the surface of the water, swimming to the top. From there, Savannah pulled the three-year-old boy to the edge of the pool, where he caught the attention of the others.
Meanwhile, relatives told his mother that her son had saved a child in the pool. She rushed from her apartment by the pool to see her son and the boy he had saved. After people called 911, a team of first responders from the Sacramento Fire Department arrived at the apartment complex. Officials confirmed the cub was breathing when they first saw him and was taken to a nearby hospital in “critical condition”.
Delvall, Massiah’s mum, was in contact with the boy’s mother, whom Massiah discovered at the bottom of the pool. She had told the news that the little one was fine and said it was nothing short of a “miracle”. Massiah had learned to swim when he was very young. His talent helped him save the life of another cub, which made his father, Marcus Browne, proud of him.
Although Marcus knew that Massiah swam like a “fish”, he was still amazed after discovering that his son had saved the life of another cub. During an interview, he said that Massiah was a “good boy”.
